As the MSM (main stream media) often points out, the internet is a hotbed for rumor and innuendo. I recently read a completely unfounded rumor that Laura Bush's college roommate was a lesbian. Even though the rumor was completely unsourced, it took minor traction.
My question is, what are we doing here at CBR with this great responsibility? According to everyone from Tony Snow to Chris Mathews to those cute chicks who do the blog reports for CNN, the internet is THE place to start and keep rumors going. But as near as I can tell, CBR seldom if ever gives fruit to any good rumors.
Folks, it isn't just enough to come here and post opinions and half baked facts and leave it at that. I believe that we have a responsibility to make sure that rumors are spread through out cyberspace and eventually leap from our computer screens and into the real world like Video Man from the old Spider-man and Friends cartoon.
So, if you've heard any juicy rumors or tidbits about comic books or anything else, please post them on this thread? Then read what other posters have, well, posted and be sure to tell at least 3 people what you've heard. It could be just months before you could start a rumor that spreads like the word "meme" did in CBR in 2004.
